Applecreek dulcimers are a great way to introduce students to the world of folk stringed instruments. They are an excellent choice for music educators looking for relatively inexpensive instruments and accessories for the classroom and budding musicians searching for the perfect song accompaniment.
An Applecreek mountain dulcimer is not only easy to learn, but will provide years of quality entertainment. Each instrument originates in Europe, crafted by experienced luthiers using traditional building techniques to ensure longevity of the gear, precise fretting, and proper intonation while playing. Features include a laminated spruce top, a richly stained back and sides, and geared "guitar style" tuning pegs for easy tuning. All of this adds up to an ideal, entry-level instrument that can sustain young musicians as they learn to play.
Applecreek also offers soft carrying bags with generous padding and shoulder straps. The protective bag is available separately from the instruments, and help students protect their instruments while carrying them to and from the classroom.
